A concrete wall blocking Qasr Al-Aini street in downtown Cairo has been replaced with a gated metal barrier.

The gate can be closed to prevent protesters or rioters entering streets leading to the nearby interior ministry, parliament and government headquarters.

Police and military personnel removed the concrete wall on Wednesday night and erected its replacement on Thursday morning.
